Experts surprised by theft of artificial insemination tanks containing a large quantity of cattle semen


Semen from prize-winning animals can command a very high price.


Semen storage is a specialised industry and as one farmer put it to me: "You don't mess around with liquid nitrogen."


that cold temperature makes it very dangerous, which is why those using it for artificial insemination storage must be trained and registered.

And the tanks must be topped up several times a year to keep them functioning.
